A Charming Close in Kensington
This is a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house is in a fabulous location in Kensington between Kensington Gardens and Holland Park. It’s on the market for £2,150,000, which is excellent given its good condition and secluded location on a little street, or “close,” which is super nice as it’s a little square. It’s a very quiet spot and only a few minutes walking to Notting Hill Gate and Kensington High Street – the perfect balance of residential living with excellent shopping, dining and transport options just moments away.
Location is key for London living and one of the reasons we love Kensington so much is all the green spaces that are right at your doorstep. This beautiful home is located just a 5 minute’s walk from Holland Park and less than 10 minutes from Kensington Gardens. Whether you like to start your day with a long run or finish it with an evening stroll, being so close to these two lovely parks is ideal. Both parks also include fun playgrounds and wide open spaces, which is perfect if you’re planning to spend time in London with young kids.

A Mews to Call Home in Kensington
Set in one of the prettiest mews in Kensington, this three-level home with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms is on the market for £2,250,000. Set near Stratford Village—where you’ll immediately feel at home—this property was refurbished to a very high standard about 8-10 years ago then used only very lightly used since. While mews homes are often very special, this one caught our eye for a few reasons. Besides its ideal location, this mews has something that many don’t – windows on both sides of the property. You’ll especially notice the advantage of this on the first floor with its large living area and kitchen.
Follow the steps up to one more level to the second floor where you’ll find two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The slanted walls, wall paneling and soft tones creates an inviting and relaxing space to relax at home.
While the property is gorgeous as it is, there’s also room for changes if needed. The large garage could be converted into an additional bedroom and a shower could be added to the ground level half bathroom by taking a little space from the new bedroom. This property is ready for your finishing touches to call it home in London!
